Publisher's Summary

A DEVIL’S BARGAIN

Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance comes due. Because she must first escape the clutches of her unscrupulous relatives, Evie has approached the rake Viscount St. Vincent with a most outrageous proposition: marriage!

Sebastian’s reputation is so dangerous that 30 seconds alone with him will ruin any maiden’s good name. Still, this bewitching chit appeared, unchaperoned, on his doorstep to offer her hand. Certainly an aristocrat with a fine eye for beauty could do far worse.

But Evie’s proposal comes with a condition: no lovemaking after their wedding night. She will never become just another of the dashing libertine’s callously discarded broken hearts —

which means Sebastian will simply have to work harder at his seductions…or perhaps surrender his own heart for the very first time in the name of true love.

    "Love it as much as reading the book!"

    I have read and reread the wallflower series (as well as several other Kleypas historical favorites) and this was a great addition. The reading brought a different touch to it but I love all of these stories! Can't wait to listen to more

    "Fantastic!"

    A perfect match with an unrepentant rogue, a shy wallflower and an unconventional storyline. Throw it all together and you have a truly enjoyable read that you can't put down.

    Story
    "Best book in the Wallflower series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this book. It's a great listen and read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lord St. Vincent is the best character. His character arc is moving and having been introduced in the second book of the series, one appreciates his development.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice actress who changes the tenor of her voice to clearly represent each character. This includes accents. Very well performed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!😀


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the entire Wallflower books. This is Ms. kleypas' best series.

    Story
    "Shy Ivy shines her light on St. Vincent"
    Any additional comments?

    Shy, little Ivy makes a deal with the devilishly handsome Lord St. Vincent. They are both desperate, the former to get out of her abusing family while the latter for money. They agree to marry and combine their misfortunes for their mutual benefit. Through their journey they come to know and care for each other. Ivy stands her ground and impresses St. Vincent with her wit and resolve. He ends up completing a full U-turn by the end, which made the story unrealistic. He was too callous for my taste in a few instances, which is why this doesn't get five stars. Overall a very enjoyable read.

    Story
    "Love conquers all"
    If you could sum up Devil in Winter in three words, what would they be?

    Love, trust and growth


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sebastian the devil. Poor guy trying so hard to be hardened and filled with ennui. He surprises himself and others by caring.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    They were all fun --- really enjoyed Sebastian and Evie


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hard to pick one moment. There were many. Roared with laughter several times, when Evie got her back up and stubbornly did not give in, leaving Sebastian nonplussed.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved reading the book and so appreciated Rosalyn Landor's narration. She did a splendid job of bringing the various characters to life. Her narration resounded with the characters voices I had heard reading the book. Bravo for Rosalyn!

    "3.5 stars, great story, okay narration..."

    I have never read/listened to a Kleypas book before and I must say I will definitely try more! I am a lover of Judith McNaught and Ms.Klypas was reminicent of her and did not disappoint me with her writing style. She brought the characters to life and made a compelling story. I would have liked to have heard a bit more of how it came to be that Sebastian fell in love with Evie( i was confused as to why) but as a whole the story went well. I was not a huge fan of Rosalyn Landor... she made the men sound like silly caricatures instead of compelling heroes for us to fall in love with. I much better prefer narrators like Jenny Sterling, Jennifer Wiltsie or Susan Duerden... I would recommend you try it out if you are one who can get past Ms. Landor's stodginess! I give the plot 4 stars and the narration 2-3 stars. And give the overall rating a 4 so one wont pass up a good story because of a so-so review! Happy Listening!

    "Hard to pick a Favorite"

    The really good thing about this series is how Kleypas continues developing all of the heroines in each of the stories, not leaving one behind as her story is featured. It makes it hard to pick a favorite heroine or book. Overall it is a great series. Looking forward to the final story.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Good enough but nothing special"

    Story - Devil in Winter is the story of a young couple who don't know each other but then meet and plan a marriage of convenience which occurs in two days. Sebastian (a ladies' man) and Evie (a wallflower) develop a mutual sexual attraction quickly, but the rest of the relationship...well, you need to hear the book. The setting is London in the 1800's. The story is good, but I never really fell in love with the characters or cared a lot about their story. There are 3-4 sex scenes which are pretty hot, and there is a decent story line running along with the romance aspect.

    Narrator - While the reader did a good job, I didn't like the way she performed Sebastian. He was portrayed as 32 years old and very sexy, but I thought he sounded like a stuffy old codger. NOT a romantic voice.

    Overall - If you like historical romance, you will probably like this story, but it's definitely not a "must hear."
